Be it in business or in life, people all too often end up wasting time by solving the wrong problem and basing their decisions on what they believe is wrong rather than focusing on identifying the correct problem and coming up with new and smarter solutions. We need to understand that knowing what to stop doing is just as important as knowing what to focus on. Join Jason Marc Campbell and Kristen Cox as they talk about the guides to identifying the right problem, setting an appropriate objective to solve it, and avoiding solutions that not only won’t work but also can make the problem worse. 


Kristen Cox is the world’s leading authority on how to apply the Theory of Constraints to governments and nonprofits. She is also the creator of Utah’s SUCCESS Framework and the Quality Throughput over Operating Expense (QT/OE) metric which serves as the guiding process improvement tool for the Utah state government. In addition, she sits on advisory boards, is a keynote speaker, consultant, trainer, and co-founder of The Fulcrum–her private, online, TOC training community. Kristen is the co-author of 2 books, Stop Decorating the Fish and The World of Decorating the Fish and The World of Decorating the Fish along with Dr. Yishai Ashlag.
